Point of Rocks Ranch Wyoming: Some ranches receive Trophy status because of their massive building programs, but at Point of Rocks Ranch, only 40 minutes outside of Laramie, Wyoming, the trophies are of the old-fashioned variety: big game and trout of a quality and quantity seldom seen anywhere. If ever a ranch was created for world-class hunting and fishing, this is surely it. Point of Rocks Ranch is over 21 square miles (approximately 13,400 acres) of well-tendered habitat that grows elk, mule deer, pronghorn and trout of proportions that are worthy of magazine covers.
Wildlife thrives at Point of Rocks Ranch because it has been intentionally managed for years with big game and trout in mind. First, the ranch is completely private, with no public roads, public land, or public access anywhere within its well-blocked perimeter, allowing herds to live here relatively undisturbed. Second, an elevation of approximately 7000 feet in the foothills of the Laramie Mountains means cool summers and relatively mild winters, in which herds of elk, mule deer, and pronghorn can thrive year-round. Third, a blend of habitat types from rolling grasslands, granite outcrops, riparian areas, and scattered forest of pine and aspen, create variety that big game love. Fourth, water is abundant, with 12 miles of live streams, making this property a wildlife magnet, while at the same time, providing remarkable fishery potential. It is simply difficult to imagine a better combination of factors conducive to producing both big game and trout.
